Movie Reviews

Far too honest for today's USA
K. Swanson | Austin, TX United States | 09/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the logical progression of Carlin's humor as the hippy dippy weatherman ages: he's gittin' cranky as he sees things becoming worse instead of better. We ain't evolving, we're becoming desensitized to all manner of atrocitae, and George is here to stick our noses in it.

Dark yes, funny yes, not perfect yes. But give the man props for having the balls to call it as he sees it, decade after decade.

{Edit: And now that he's gone, my guess is this show will be seen in the light it deserves: a truly intelligent and trenchant social commentator telling the truth about modern America...whether we like it or not.

Looking at some of the negative reviews here, I have to laugh at their complaints about how dark this is and proclaiming that GC's lighter side is where it's at. So an artist can't ever stray from what works for him and move into new avenues of perception? He can't simply tell the truth as he sees it, even if it's not always funny?

I think George more than earned the right to give us a dead-on rant like this. He made us laugh for over forty years. So at the end of his life he ain't allowed to call it precisely as he sees it...and as it truly is? Damn right he's got the right. He earned it. Plus, there is endless truth here. Too bad for those who can only handle jokey jokes. And hell, there are plenty of laughs, but they're aimed at those who dig Monty Python or Bill Hicks more than Andrew Dice Clay or Joan Rivers.

For those who appreciate a rare shaft of truthlight cutting through the cloud cover of 21st century bs, it doesn't get much more direct and correct than this.

Rest in peace, George. You did your job as well as any comedian who ever lived. Maybe better.}

"Carlin has lost it. That's right; he's lost all inhibition and is willing to give his always topical subject manner both barrels. Is it funny, yes, but darkly so.

If you didn't think this show was funny it's probably because Carlin was talking about you."

"Only George Carlin could be so dark and negative and get away with it. A one of a kind set. This comic had always pushed the limits and this time he raises the bar to infinity!"
Recommended only for intelligent adults! mind blowing brill

"This was one of George's last great wake up calls to a lazy and stupid American public that allows the crooked , powerful and few to loot our national treasure, abuse the poor, and kill our children. This isnt the hippy dippy weatherman of his earlier days nor is it the very funny things we all have in common of Brian Regan or Jerry Seinfeld...this is a LION IN WINTER!!! George loves this country and says so..he loves the freedoms we USED to have as well. George points out how this beautiful land has been turned into a coast to coast shopping mall and he hits couch potatoes hard (hence some of the negative reviews)...
If you want Goofy George..look elsewhere...if you want to be challenged to get off your butt...enjoy!"
